SCOPUS– Elsevier’s Answer to Web of Science?

Elsevier has a new offering called SCOPUS (named after a bird)
SCOPUS is under consideration for purchase by UT and was demonstrated by Elsevier marketeers to a group of librarians in Knoxville and Memphis last week. There is a demo on the SCOPUS webpage which is probably similar to what the marketeers presented. One of the claims made for SCOPUS was “It’s not about searching, it’s about finding.”

If you see any ads for SCOPUS or reviews, please forward them to me. If you click on the bird link above it takes you to Wikipedia. There is a link to citation searching, which includes a mention of SCOPUS and Web of Science with a link to an article that evaluates them.
